ARMIDALE has changed a lot over the years.
That’s all too clear when you look at our gallery of photos through the decades.
Meet our columnist Jim Belshaw, who writes about Armidale history.
Read some of Jim Belshaw’s history columns:

Early promise runs aground: It was part of a series on the remarkable story of Wilhelm Kirchner and German immigration to New England.
Long bumpy road to start a teacher’s life: Armidale drew students from across Northern NSW. Getting to Armidale wasn't always easy. This is part of a series on the early days of higher education in New England.
Casino Boys wait for wings: This post is part of the story of the Casino Boys, a story that links New England to Dutch and Indonesian history during the second World War and the struggle for Indonesian independence.
